Skip to comments.He liked to joke about Chappaquiddick (Audio)

Ed Klein, former editor for Newsweek and New York Times Magazine, was a close personal friend of Ted Kennedy and decided to share some memories of the late Senator on The Diane Rehm Show.
KLEIN: I don't know if you know this or not, but one of his favorite topics of humor was indeed Chappaquiddick itself. And he would ask people, "Have you heard any new jokes about Chappaquiddick?" That is just the most amazing thing. It's not that he didn't feel remorse about the death of Mary Jo Kopechne, but that he still always saw the other side of everything and the ridiculous side of things, too.

What a scumbag.
Sorry dude... that was an epic FAIL! Making jokes about a death of someone that you let die is in very, very poor taste.
Shamelessly CRASS attitude and behavior.
There is no other side to some situations. MO.
Like making jokes about aborted fetuses.
If we all could just reach one young person and head them off from the path of obese drunken liberalism, then Teddy's wasted life would have meaning to us all...instead of just the people who he got money for from our paychecks.
RIP Teddy...or not
forgive me I couldn't resist:
How are Obama and an aborted fetus alike??
They don't have birth certificates
How did the aborted fetus cross the road??
Stapled to the NOW supporter.
So OLD DEAD TED would think it was fitting for us to share jokes about him then, right? Maybe we should start a new thread.
Good Idea! Let me be the first. Why did Joan Kennedy divorce Teddy boy? Because he was a terrible BRIDGE player. NYUK NYUK NYUK
It distracts from the serious topic and belittles it in fact.
Very worldly. Not compassionate. MO
I don’t think anything has been distracted from....
but I guess it’s a matter of opinion.
You have a nice weekend!!!
When you think about it you realize this shows the Leftist mindset: Chappaquiddick is just something that happened to this really nice caring pleasant humane guy, who was just out minding his own business, having a little party. An accident. Not at all his fault, everything he did was understandable. Sad, but hey, he bears up under the tragedy and makes jokes about this unfortunate turn of events.
Instead of a window into the soul of a totally corrupt self-centered liar and coward who left a another person to die because of the risk to his political career. And the reality that the Leftists are all right with him leaving her to die, because he will be on their side in their battles to “fix” (and I mean in the sense of castration) American society.
It has long been true ... that creating distractions that get attention ... are covers for doing major things that are quietly slipped through legislation or whatever.
Stay alert. in Washington any flap is typically controlled and created to be distractions.
The major news medias are only too happy to create the diversions. In another sense ... our children, and all the gadgets, games and TV programing are also meant to train, brainwash, and seduce their way of thinking. Most of us are aware of the overt sexuality content ... Not new but highly progressed from earlier years when we were children. Some/many parents are too busy to notice the result.
